They said it would never happen (as Amy said: "I didn’t think you two were allowed to be in the same place at the same time. Like some national security thing"), but indeed it did. And it wasn’t gay at all, you jerks.
Okay, so it was a little gay.
I spent about 30 hours at Posh Jefito Manor in beautiful New Hampshire. I found Jeff in a bunker by a swamp, covered in empty bottles of Jack Daniels, muttering something about website backups. Once I got him cleaned up, though, I found that he was quite hospitable, and only snarled at me once when I put his CDs back in the wrong alphabetical, chronological order.

In all reality, I had a fantastic trip and got to spend some quality time with Jeff along with his wife and daughter. We did a lot during my brief trip, including a viewing of the documentary Into The Night: The Benny Mardones Story (review forthcoming) and some other projects that will make it to the web at some point. And for all of you concerned about the future of the best music blogger on the Internet, I can’t spill all the details yet, but I can assure you that it won’t be long before he’s back ruling the web. In the meantime, you can still read Jeff on a daily basis by checking out some of his music reviews at Bullz-Eye or his news posts at Rotten Tomatoes.
Thanks again to the Jefito clan for being such gracious hosts. Hope to do it again soon!
